Boston Jeepz
Hi! I contacted Boston Jeepz in Newton, MA because I was having a hard time trying to get in contact with another shop in the south shore to upgrade my Jeep.I bought a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport in February, my 3rd Wrangler, and I wanted to look towards getting it lifted and 33" tires on it. When I went down and spoke with Dave, I was very impressed with his knowledge, and made a very compelling case as to why we needed to have other items on my Jeep addressed before we get to modification. Dave was respectful, courteous and not only explained to me as to what was wrong with my Jeep, but had it lifted and showed me the problems underneath the beast. Although the list of repairs were pretty extensive, they were able to turn around the Jeep in 2 days!!! These guys are very flexible and treat you with respect.The prices were very fair to boot, especially compared to my usual mechanic. I am sure I would have paid at least 25% more at any other shop (and that's being conservative). They did high quality work, and Dave is the kind of guy that takes into consideration what needs to be done now and what should be done but can wait. He leaves options open for you while giving you the information you need, because, believe it or not, he actually cares about how much you will have to pay and doesn't even try to push you to pay for repairs you don't need. After the winter I plan on going back to Boston Jeepz to tackle a few final repairs, and then it's lift time!!!The Jeep drives great! I was very happy with the service, and I am happy that I went with Boston Jeepz. I would take my Jeep to no other shop, and look forward to getting in Mod-Mode after winter!!! Thanks guys :) I only wish they did more than Jeeps, I would bring all of my vehicles here if I could! But trust me...if you have a Jeep brand vehicle, Dave and Boston Jeepz is the only place you need to go!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
